Spiritual Warfare

The spiritual conflict that is happening now actually started a long time ago and every person in this world is now part of it. You are part of that spiritual conflict, but the good news is that you are positioned to overcome in every spiritual conflict as a child of God.

In Ephesians 6:12 the Bible declares, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (KJV). This means we fight against spirit beings that are not visible to our natural eyes. These entities or beings are strategically placed and their intention is to destroy you and those you love. They use deception, lies, fear and much more to destroy the souls of men.

Those who believe in Jesus Christ must be aware that they are involved in a huge spiritual conflict and that God has provided a way for overcoming spiritual forces. To overcome these forces God’s full armor must be utilized. In verse thirteen of the same chapter the Bible tells us to put on the whole armor of God which protects us from the attacks of the enemy. When you encounter the evil day at some point in your life the full armor of God is able to protect you as a child of God. This is God’s complete protection for you as a child of God and you need to wear that armor at all times.
